Event description

Description

Dorset's #YouthVoice Summit is an opportunity for young people and decision makers to shape how young people are listened to, heard and their views acted upon.

Participants will explore what makes a good youth forum and how to support decision makers to work with them.

Together, we will create a vision for Dorset's #YouthVoice strategy for the next 2 years.

The conference is open to schools, colleges and Youth Forums across Dorset.

Decision makers will be invited from across services including the county council, health and police.

Run by the Dorset Youth Council and Dorset's Young Facilitator Trainees and supported by Participation People.
